Chad Brown (winning trainer of 9-10 favorite Rushing Fall)

“She definitely loves the (Keeneland turf) course. Big team effort. Just a great day – so many people that played a part in her development are here today.

“She’s fit, she’s sharp right now. I knew it would be close. She’s a top filly herself, but there can only be one winner. All three (his Onthemoonagain [FR]) ran fourth) ran well, and they’ll probably go their separate ways now.”

Javier Castellano (winning rider)

“I give all the credit to Mr. (Chad) Brown, the way he’s been training this horse since the layoff. This filly, she’s so nice – the way she broke out of the gate, the way she relaxed. I just enjoyed the ride. She (got) tired, but just a little bit. But she finished strong and did it very easy.”

Irad Ortiz Jr. (rider of runner-up Rymska [FR])

“The pace was a little slow, and not too many horses had speed in the race. We got beat by a nice filly. We were second best today. It was a little tight getting through on the rail, but she went through anyway. We have no excuses today.”

Tyler Gaffalione (rider of third-place finisher Got Stormy)

“My filly really ran her heart out. She tries so hard every time. I’m just so happy for her to get a Grade 1 placing now. She’s going to have a great year. I’m really looking forward to it.”
